modfile: add support for go and toolchain lines As part of the forward compatibility work, a new toolchain line is being added, and go lines are allowed to specify toolchain versions like "1.21.0" or "1.21rc1" now. (The lax RE has allowed this for quite some time; what's new here is allowing it in the main module.) For golang/go#57001.

This repository holds packages for writing tools that work directly with Go module mechanics. That is, it is for direct manipulation of Go modules themselves.
It is NOT about supporting general development tools that need to do things like load packages in module mode. That use case, where modules are incidental rather than the focus, should remain in x/tools, specifically x/tools/go/packages.
The specific case of loading packages should still be done by invoking the go command, which remains the single point of truth for package loading algorithms.
